Otter Cottage gets solar hot water

Ian has put the solar hot water panels onto Otter cottage, the last of our self catering accommodation to get them. These ones should really cook – being on a south facing roof. All we need now is the sunshine. Poor Ian must have wondered whether it was all worth it as he worked alternately on the roof with rain dripping down his neck and in the loft with tar dust falling in his hair!

We rushed it through because guests who had booked Beech and Nuthatch lodges also wanted the cottage – a birthday party get together.

The system came from Navitron again. Ian says they’ve made some improvements. The new pumping station was much easier to fit than the old one and the clips on the actual tubes were better too.
